I am interested in customizing the Emacs display as much as possible, and wondered if it was possible to customize the layout of the Emacs mode-line and command prompt.

For example, I would like to move the command prompt and mode-line to the top of the window instead of the bottom.

Is this possible, and if so, how is it done?

Show a header line that looks just like the mode line:

$ emacs --eval "(setq header-line-format mode-line-format)"
